The last story in the Quilt series by Wanda and Jean Brunstetter. An Amish romance inspired by a quilt. Sadie pursues her dream of writing a quilt book and finding romance. An easy read and a page turner. Enjoyed the series. ( )

This book has several themes that are unusual in Amish fiction. Sadie Kuhns is a young Amish woman who took a cruise to the Hawaiian Islands with her Amish friends and Wyman Kaufmann is her easily bored boyfriend who doesn't keep a job very long. Yes, these seem foreign to the hardworking Amish culture that we're familiar with, but authors Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter make them work in this entertaining story that shows the conflicts they both face. Sadie would like to write a book and it appears that she can pursue this goal when her aunt leaves her a substantial amount of money. Will this inheritance and her ambition drive Wyman away? Are her dreams of being a wife and mother completely destroyed?

It becomes obvious that Sadie and Wyman are both guilty of allowing worldly influences to affect their relationships with each other and with God. They appear to have forgotten the simple life that is the backbone of Amish culture. Will they learn to once again be content with the simple things of life?

The Blended Quilt is an intriguing story that shows the importance of faith, family, and friends, while subtly reminding us that following God's direction is the key to happiness and contentment.

I received a copy of this book from the authors. A favorable review wasn't required and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts. ( )

I have loved every book in this series. Each one fills me with joy and comfort. I feel as if Sadie and her family have invited me into their home to visit. The author has a way that makes me wish this was a real family and we could be friends. I would love to sit and eat dinner with them, join them at church services and be part of their nightly Devotionals.

Sadie is not content with her relationship with Wyman. He flitters from job to job and that makes her have doubts . How can she marry someone who doesn’t have a steady job? I enjoyed reading how they try to work things out but they do not see eye to eye on things.

When an unexpected inheritance comes to Sadie, her dream of writing a book seems possible to achieve now. I loved reading how she incorporates Hawaiian designs with Amish designs to make beautiful quilts. The book offers a variety of styles along with facts about Hawaii. I would definitely purchase her book. Not everyone in the family is happy that Sadie inherited so much money. After all her sisters didn’t get anywhere near the amount Sadie did. The author examines how jealousy can cause friction among friends and families.

I really enjoyed how the family realizes they need to be happy for Sadie and encourage her as she publishes her book. There is a little conflict in the story between a married couple that I found to be quite interesting, The Amish deal with similar issues as we do and money seemed to be one of the big problems between this husband and wife. I liked how the author had them seek a Christian counselor for help. At times I though the wife was bitter and allowed her anger to push her husband away.

One of my favorite parts of the book was the turmoil Sadie had as she started to become famous due to her book. She has less time to help with chores and her relationship with Wyman suffers as well. Is pride getting in her way? The author demonstrates how important prayer is and supporting each other in time of need. Sadie is surrounded by Godly people who along with God’s guidance make decisions that will honor Him. Do Sadie and Wyman reconcile and get married? You have to read the book to find out.

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. The review is my own opinion. ( )

"The Blended Quilt" contains several story lines that are related to one another. Sadie and Wyman struggle to make their relationship work, as each of them pursues different interests and jobs. Mandy and Ken live on the beautiful island of Kauai, but encounter life changes as they begin their family and manage their Bed and Breakfast. Other family members and characters find daily challenges to happiness and lifestyles in this novel of an Amish community. Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone novel.

I have read other books by these authors, but sadly, this one was not one of their best. The stories seemed disjointed, and perhaps would have worked better as a short story collection. The book ended abruptly and the finale seemed unrealistic. I disliked the characters; they seemed shallow and focused on themselves. I did not feel they portrayed Amish values very well, with too much emphasis on money and a lack of acceptance and support for each other.

This is a clean read, without strong language, and lacking descriptions of violence or intimacy. The Christian message is overt and forms a key elements of the story line.

I received this novel from the publisher and from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own. ( )

I have to admit this was not one of my favorite stories that these authors have written. It is a pretty good story but I really did not like either of the main characters. It was a decent idea to write about an Amish girl who creates a new style of quilt and then writes a book about doing this. That was really good. It was also interesting to see how she reacted after receiving a hefty inheritance. I am not sure how I liked the relationship she had with Wyman. I do recommend reading the book because it is good. I just am not sure how I liked Sadie or Wyman. I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and the author fir a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. ( )
